The 2018 City tournament Championship Game: Thursday: Pine Belt Trophy defeated Finlo 12-8 in 7 innings. Well played game all around by both teams. Congratulations to Pine Belt Trophy for winning the City Tournament.
All-star teams have not been voted on or finalized yet. If you make All-stars you will receive a text message and/or phone call from the coach in the next couple of days.
Congratulations to Finlo who is the 2018 HDBB Regular Season Champions. Finlo finished the regular season 13-0. Regular season and Tournament Championship metals will be handed out after the Tournament Championship. MVP and Newcomer of the Year awards will be handed out as well.
Congratulations to HDBB Alumni Russell Coleman (2014-2015) on signing a baseball scholarship with Tuskegee University last week. We still have a couple of more guys on the verge of signing in the next few weeks and will make the announcement when they do.
We are starting plans for the 2018 Dixie Boys and Jr. Dixie Boys State All-star Tournaments to be held at our park beginning July 7th. We are selling banner spots on the fences around the park. If your business or church would like to advertise at the park, you can purchase a spot for $100.00 for both tournaments.
There is no mandatory play rule in Hattiesburg Dixie Boys. Playing time is at the discretion of the coaches. While we all try to get everyone in and an at bat each game, sometimes it's not possible.
We are proud to announce the start of Phase 2 of our brick sidewalk project. Space is limited. Get your brick ($50.00) or tile ($125.00) ordered today. Forms are available for download on this website or you can get one from the concession stand.
Great Opening Day and a very special ceremony Saturday. 3 really good games as well. Thank you to everyone who came out and made it special.
HDBB was selected to host the 14 year old State All-star tournament and the 13 year old State All-star tournaments this year. Dates are July 7-13 for the 14's and July 14-20 for the 13's.

Cameron Field and the batting cages are closed to use by anybody other than official Hattiesburg Dixie Boys teams. The fields are scheduled for use each day from Feb until the first week of August.
There is a city ordinance that does not allow dogs in our park. Please do not bring your pet to the ball park. We will ask you to take Rover out of the park.
Please return all foul balls to the concession stand. We are having far to many not being returned. Keeping game balls will cost everyone in the league more money in the long run. Thank you for your help.
Due to insurance regulations only players, coaches, and Dixie Officials are allowed on the playing field and/or the dugouts. Nobody is allowed to be on the field for practice or games that is not on a Hattiesburg Dixie Boys roster. The only time this is waived is in the event of an injury to a player, coach or umpire. This policy will be enforced this season. We have no choice due to insurance and safety reasons.
